dc.description.abstract This study will determine the relative contributions of diet and water to metal bioaccumulation and toxicity in aquatic invertebrates. At present the majority of regulatory approaches assume that all biologically available metal comes from the waterborne route. If this isn't the case, then the overall regulatory approach will have to be reassessed. Currently there are no sediment and water quality guidelines for uranium in Canada, making it difficult for the management and protection of ecosystems that are impacted by the uranium mining industry, such as those found in Northern Saskatchewan. The results of this research will assist in the development of U water and sediment guidelines for the protection of aquatic environments. en
